Bio and Links
Bio Photo *Thank you for being a fellow volunteer collaborator on Find A Grave.
I am thankful that sites such as Find A Grave are here to document the final disposition (burial location, cremation, etc.)of our ancestors, descendants, relatives and friends. These sites and the memorials created may well be around longer than a tombstone or cemetery exists or a tombstone is readable. I hope my time spent creating and maintaining memorials through research and collaboration with others will be of use to others researching where their ancestors and loved ones are buried as a part of their family history.

*EDIT PROCESS - Per the Find A Grave rules: "You can submit updates or corrections of factual information for any memorial by clicking on the 'Edit' tab on the memorial in question." (Please do not leave any requests here.)
I will most likely research your edit requests to double check for accuracy and will contact you if I have a question, am concerned or would like to see a copy of the document the request is based on. At the same time I will add a note to the bio section about the suggested edits. I am appreciative of all edit requests and those wanting to collaborate to make memorials as accurate as possible. I generally do not post transcripts of documents when the information is included in the factual sections or lists of sources. *Please note it is nothing personal when I ask for documentation it is simply trying to be accurate and preferring to see the documentation for myself (which is partly a result of having been given incorrect information in the past both here and elsewhere). I am often even pickier when the person is in my family tree.


*OBITUARIES - I will not add cut and paste obituaries unless they are out of copyright or you provide me with a letter or email from the copyright holder giving permission to add it. I am happy to rewrite the factual information in the obituary into a short biography if you send the obituary to me. I would appreciate the name of the newspaper or website where the full obit can be found and the date it appeared so I can list that in the bio section. The names of living people will not be listed in the bio nor will URL links.
*Please do not post scanned obituaries or photos that you did not take to the photo section as they are against the rules on Findagrave due to copyright issues.

*TRANSFERS - As per the Findagrave rules, I automatically transfer direct ancestors and descendants within 4 generations (siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren), unless I am also directly related within the 4 generations. If you are directly related within 4 generations, please use the edit tab to make your request and tell me how you are related. I will not respond to messages left here. If we are both related my hope would be that we connect and share information. Findagrave does not require transfers to people outside of the guidelines noted above.

*BURIAL UNKNOWNS - I will not link to memorials where the burial location is unknown or to people who have obviously been intentionally placed in a cemetery where someone "thinks" they "might be" (especially when I know it has been proven they are not buried there) and I plead with you to not add them as they are against the rules and it defeats the primary purpose of Find A Grave to document final dispositions. I can't begin to count the times I have been disappointed to find someones name on Find A Grave only to find that the final disposition is missing. Findagrave is not a family tree site or a memorial site, it is a site to document final dispositions with the ability to add information that is of genealogical value and that helps memorialize a persons life. Findagrave does not require linking to memorials where the final disposition is unknown.

RE: John Seymour
Interestingly enough I just discovered John and my relative were married in 1934! I went ahead and linked Gladys's memorial to his, even though I haven't created a memorial for her first husband yet. John has been on my to do list for awhile. I'm glad I finally got to the Galt Cemetery! Adding him to my family tree really opened up some new information! John D.

RE: Hoyle and Laura Hovis
Good question - to be honest, I don't recall exactly where I obtained that info from, but it was probably from something on Ancestry.com. My info may not be accurate, so if you choose not to use it, that's fine. Thanks!

RE: John Seymour
The death information I have is from John Seymour's death certificate. His place of death was the Doctors Hospital in Lodi. I don't remember sending an edit about his place of birth. I don't have any information on that other than Canada. He was the third and last husband of my relative, Gladys Mae Kille. I'm not sending a link for her memorial yet as I haven't obtained the burial information for her first husband and would like to place in correct order. So far I've been unable to locate a marriage record for John & Gladys, but believe it was in the 1940s. Which newspaper was John Seymour's obit in? Thank you for your note. Best Regards, John D.
